A once-prominent swimming coach who trained thousands of children was sentenced to seven years in prison Thursday for sexually abusing one of the girls he instructed.
USA Swimming banned coach Rick Curl for life for an improper relationship with a teenage swimmer in the 1980s, another ugly chapter in a sexual abuse scandal that rocked one of America's most successful Olympic sports.
Tom Dolan inspired young athletes to dream in gold. Cara Heads pushed herself to look beyond a medal. Derek Brown wondered what was next.
A sucker for the video stories that tug on viewers' heartstrings, Mr. Dolan said he'll be following the Olympic coverage, but doing it with a peaceful mind.
"They understand that everyone starts out at the same spot," said Mr. Dolan, who overcame asthma he developed at 12 to become a world-class athlete. "No one's path is straight up. It doesn't work that way, and it's awesome for young kids to see that."
